Coaching & development,

sail or engine refresher course

How to learn to better handle your boat alone or with a crew?

Whether with the engine or the sail, maneuvering is not always easy when you lack practice. Do you sometimes have some difficulties getting in or out of your berth?

Taking the wind and the environment into account, anticipating the chain of events, understanding your boat and knowing its inertia and characteristics are the sine qua non conditions for safe practice.
